Taylor Swift created history with her new album Midnights, becoming the first artist ever to claim the entire top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. Topping the charts is the track Anti-Hero, with all other songs also being from her latest album, which was released on October 21. Taylor has surpassed Drake, who logged nine of the Hot 100’s top 10 for a week in September last year, as per Billboard.
